2023.05.29 17:47 Boring-Mouse-2676 Maintenance Advice - Remote Start
Here we go. Hey y’all, I’ve been having a lot of problems with my car and I wanted to see if anyone had ideas for me. To start, I had a remote starter installed through Best Buy 2 years ago when I lived in MN. Never had any issues with it till after I moved. It started with the starter fob not starting my car, could still unlock it with the fob for a few weeks after that point. I brought it into my local Best Buy and he said the people who installed it originally forgot a certain wire/cord. Got it put in, didn’t have any issues with it for two weeks. Then it stopped working again and the Best Buy mechanic said we should try replacing the starteinstalling a new one/ ect. While waiting for the new company to send the replacement I had to use my Subaru fob to open/start the car. No problem except that the fob won’t work even after battery replacement. The horn/factory alarm goes off every time we do unlock with the key. So I went to Subaru dealership to see if I can get the normal key fixed and they said the Best Buy guys “Butchered” my wiring harness and the entire thing had to be replaced for $3,000. We held off because we’re going to get the new starter installed once it comes in to Best Buy. Skip to just recently, got the new starter installed installed and it WORKED for a week before it stopped completely again. Skip again to yesterday I brought it in to Best Buy, he got the starter to work only when you held down the button to unlock, wait 3 seconds and THEN hold to start it. Otherwise it doesn’t work at all. Which already was strange to me. He started it for me multiple times, everything was fine. I left and went home. Hours later I went to go pick my husband up and the alarm went off when I UNLOCKED with the fob (could hear the doors physically unlocking) but when I tried to turn the car on to turn the alarm off it didn’t work so I had to start it with the starter. Even then it would turn on but all the dashboard warning lights came on, it stayed running fine for 3 second before I heard the engine sputter and then die. Tried it again and now the car won’t start AT ALL. Geek Squad told me to call today and talk to someone. Will they fix it if the wiring was messed up by their technician? Will they pay for the tow truck cause I sure can’t? Will they pay for Subaru to fix it or just do another hack job and make it worse? It’s been a real headache. Any advice is welcomed. I hope I explained things well enough it’s been a mess. I’ll update when I talk to someone today. Thank you!

2023.05.29 13:57 elopez115 TTS
I currently have TTS and it renews in November. Heard it’s changing soon and I was planning on getting a tv and having it wall mounted. Do I need to do this before the new plan rolls out or before my renewal date in order to get the free wall mounting.
I’ve like the fact that geek squad support is included with TTS but have never actually had to use it. I’m more familiar when you would buy geek squad per product. With the current or new TTS, if my gaming headphones go bad (turns off randomly when fully charged) do I need to pay additional to send them out or something or will they just swap them out for a new pair for me.
I also have a MacBook covered I bought a few months ago, how long is it covered for. I just had to get it repaired at apple bc it would not turn on. Since TTS is yearly is it only covered as long as I renew TTS?

2023.05.29 09:20 SithRose My compassion is fatigued.
Overnight, we lost 3 of the Fire Brigade. Char, Ember, and Blaze all passed suddenly and unexpectedly.
We don't know why or what happened. Nothing untoward was found. There were no common signs of illness or cause of death. In fact Char, the little SIC, had been doing exceptionally well. Did the ScorpiNarn strike again? But these were healthy young kittens socializing well from having been feral, they weren't in Londo's condition at all. They'd been climbing on me and snuggling with me, and had their first set of shots already. A tiny bit thin as they transitioned to kitten kibble and wet food, but not anything to worry about - they were hitting their 9 week growth spurt, a *small* amount of weight loss in the first week is not unusual when feral babies come in to be socialized at that age.
I'm at a loss, and mournful. Flame, their surviving sibling, seems depressed and I don't want to leave anyone in the Quarantine Room until we've done a full deep clean AND air out right now - caution (and a vet visit) is called for with surprising losses of 9 week olds like this.
I've renamed Smoke and Ash to Ellie and Grogu. They remind me of "Pedro's Kids" in their own ways. Perhaps a bit of a tribute to our beloved little Din Djarin, as well. We have moved both Ellie and Grogu, as well as The Second Doctor and Flame, into the bedroom with overnights in the Medlab Crate for careful observation, as well as the paw of a helpful pair of Queens. Oleander is already taking sad little Flame under her paw, and he may become an honorary member of the Spice Squad as the Fire Brigade is dissolved into different groups. Storm is attending to Grogu and The Second Doctor. I will have to work extra hard with little Flame, because he is still in the process of socializing and has more places to hide than I like in the bedroom. Normally I would have left everyone in the Quarantine Room, but what happened doesn't fit any transmissible feline disease that *I* know of, even some of the nastier virals, and the Spice Squad has their shots. (We're still heading to the vet as soon as I can get the ones who lived an appointment. I want these four under my close eye, and if I feel it's needed I CAN work in the bedroom.)
The Second Doctor, or as the kids call him "Tiny Doctor", is eating extremely well. He's gained four ounces, and is now 1 lb 4.3 oz. That's a LOT of weight gain since late night 5/23 when he came in, and he's still readily taking his bottles. He is a feisty little guy, and full of playful spirit. Ellie and Grogu are slowly transitioning to wet food, a task made a bit harder by having to move them to the Medlab Crate - the Spice Squad volunteers to help every time I go to feed them. All three of them insist on climbing up you like a tree, regardless of what you're wearing...and I am made hopeful by their kitten energy, while still worrying after what I found this morning.

2023.05.29 04:27 randomplayer72 Bought an Open-Box Excellent OLED TV. It has a noticeable burn-in. What now?
I picked up an LG B2 OLED from a location that is 40 minutes away from me. It turned out to be a display unit with 6500 hours. More importantly, it had a nice searing in the middle. Really annoying when watching sports. I am upset that they sold this as "Excellent". I picked this up with no inspection since it was marked as Excellent. What a waste of time.
Ideally, I want to get a panel replacement. Returning this would be a big hassle if I have to bring it back to the original store.
The options I am considering are: - Ask LG for a panel replacement. - Ask BBY for a panel replacement (or an exchange to another open box unit). - Get a Geek Squad warranty (covers oled burn-in) and submit a claim later. - Just return it.
What would be the most probable way to get a panel replacement?

2023.05.29 01:08 TravelNerd4Life HP 31.5” Monitor: Protection Plan
I have a random question and looking for the best way to resolve the issue.
I have an HP 31.5” monitor that I purchased back in December 2020. It’s been great up until a few weeks ago. The screen will randomly flicker and then shut off. To get it working again, I have to unplug it, wait a minute, and plug it back in. It’s a bit annoying, if I’m being honest.
I did buy the 4 year Geek Squad Protection Plan. I’m wondering what to do with it/is this a situation where the plan would come in handy?
The monitor is no longer sold anymore. This is also an issue that’s intermittent, so I can’t necessarily recreate it. It just happens when it happens.
I appreciate any and all help in advance!

2023.05.28 22:10 DrashaZImmortal What do consultation agents do in down time?
Prolly a bit of a weird question but as the title says, what do they do when theres no customers around? The local bestbuy near me often seems to be reather slow, especially on geek squad side. So seeing a CA without anyone up a the desk to help is fairly common. From waht iv been told they dont really do much of the actual fixing, thats done by other agents, so if thats the case.. what do they do when the store is empty/dead ? Do you just vibe and do some paper work, have things to fix behind the desk or something? Or is it just kinda brain off, wait for someone to give you something to do?

Not shown - disturbances breaking out among voters on our debt crisis.
“U.S. leaders gamble with world’s most trusted asset in debt showdown (msn.com)
There's so much wrong with this headline (see link above) I don't know where to begin.
First of all, our current leaders (Biden and McCarthy?) are hardly the ones who created this mess. Nor are they the clowns that any sane person would pick to fix it. The $31.4 trillion national debt ($250,000 per taxpayer) has been building for eons. Let's concede that 2021 and 2022 did see some of the most absurd government spending ever. If America's financial reputation is, indeed, “our most important asset”, why even trust it some random president and congress who happen to get elected in an even numbered year?
Wait – we don't do that? We don't have our money controlled by them? Then now DOES it work?
The US financial system is managed by UNELECTED bureaucrats. Not politicians who we can hold accountable on election day. This would explain so much. Except how we now owe $250,000 each in federal debt. Here's my theory on how we got here. The Federal Reserve Chairman is appointed
. From a crew of Fed governors, who themselves are appointed. To 14 year terms, in odd numbered years. This is supposed to appear bipartisan. But does zero to ensure competence. One of the Federal Reserve governors succeeded in driving his own bank into insolvency this year. This should serve as a wakeup call, eh? The FDIC Chairman is appointed to a 5 year term.
Again, because he wears a non-partisan uniform. His job is to use FDIC money (actually, our money) to bail out banks which fall into a hole and die. His job is also to send in examiners to detect and end risky practices, to prevent banks from falling into a hole and dying in the first place. Well, THAT'S been going really well, hasn't it? The Secretary of the Treasury –
this year our Treasury Secretary is 77 year old Janet Yellen. Nominated by the more mature President Biden. Some people would say “give her a break, she's a woman and she's new at this – only been on the job for 2 years”. Think again – Janet first began working at the Federal Reserve over 50 years ago. Been there at least four times. In between she's variously been: a Harvard professor; chair of the Council of Economic Advisors; a professor at University of California Berkeley; a Brookings Institution think tank expert . . . If you want to find someone's fingerprints on this financial mess, Janet's are everywhere, going back 50 years. Her signature is also on every dollar bill in your wallet. The Comptroller of the Currency –
flies under everyone's radar. Can you even name him? (Michael Hsu.) His direct supervisor is Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen. But she has almost no power over him. The Comptroller is nominated by the president – ALSO for a 5 year term - to appear non-partisan. But that doesn't necessarily mean that he's in cahoots with those 5 year FDIC guys. Even though his job sounds similar: “to investigate misconduct committed by institution-affiliated parties of national banks, including officers, directors, employees, . . . “
Okay – those 4 appointees should be enough to get the job done, right? But wait, there's a bunch MORE federal agencies with their fingers in the money pie. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau – created after the 2008 banking system meltdown. The Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council. A special regulator for Credit Unions, and another for mortgage lenders. The Securities and Exchange Commission; the Congressional Budget Office. The Government Accountability Office (aka Government Accounting Office); the Council of Economic Advisors; the Office of Management and Budget; the Office of Economic Policy; the Financial Stability Oversight Council. Not to be confused with the similarly named “Office of Financial Stability” . . . and 50 state banking regulators too, of course.
If you concluded that responsibility for this mess is spread so thin as to be almost nonexistent - you get a gold star. Quick . . who would you actually blame any specific thing? None of these appointed geeks actually does anything other than preside over staff spending money that doesn't even belong to them. Of course, that's how we ended up in debt over our eyeballs. And these guys are all saying “no problemo – just raise the spending limit so I can get back to work and stop answering your annoying questions”.
(Janet Yellen, I'm looking at you). I just made that quote up. But that's the vibe coming out of the White House, the Treasury Department, the Federal Reserve, the FDIC, and congress, isn't it?
Actual leaders - in a democracy - are accountable to voters. The appointed bureaucrats aren't. And the few people who ARE elected to their jobs (the president, leaders of the senate and house) probably can't balance their own checkbooks. Biden isn't even allowed to drive, or go to the bathroom by himself these days.
We now have the highest interest rates in a generation. The highest inflation rate too. Record spending on everything imaginable – defense, welfare, education, healthcare, infrastructure, social security, spotted owls . . . and we still have homeless camps 2 miles long.
Yesterday a deal was reached to increase the national debt – and government spending. Hooray - we are saved! “Ask everybody who ain't asleep to stand right up and yell . . .” \
lyrics to “Hey Porter”, the first song written by Johnny Cash (1954). Ry Cooder's cover of this song may be more compelling than Cash's original version though.*

I eventually am trying to get into cybersecurity (and am pursuing certs) but because I majored in something unrelated and am now trying to get into this field, it has been difficult finding help desk type positions, would something like that help me get into the entry level if I did it for 1 or so years?

2023.05.28 05:26 H3LL_MAU5 Took my 2021 G15 Ryzen 9, 3070 laptop to geek squad for repair, they messed up the screen twice and they ended up giving me a brand new 2022 G15 with the 3070Ti model for free.. let’s go!

My laptop’s one year extended warranty from Best Buy was about to expire a month ago so I took it for repair since the fans were making a buzzing noise, and the screen had dead pixels, they replaced the motherboard and the screen, then the screen started flickering right as I was picking it up! So they send it back and once they “repaired it”, the screen started doing the same thing, so they gave me a new one let’s go!

So i have been a geek squad agent for about 5 months and i just recently got back from an LOA (leave of absence) for a medical surgery about a week after coming back my GSM and GM sat down in the office and they told me they need to cut the head count of full timers at geek squad or else they will cut out hours. My store has 3 CA full timer one of which being the Senior CA, i had worked on the sales floor previously so i makes sense they are asking about this to me however i left the sales floor because i wasnt happy and they knew that i dont know what to do or if there is anything i can do i dont wanna leave geek squad and dont wanna go back to sales but im no really given a choice at this point in time they are essentially holding my position hostage i dont wanna quit but dont wanna sell on the floor i dont know what to do any advice?

It’s been almost a year since I graduate with my bachelors in cis with an emphasis in information security. I got involved with clubs and competitions during my time and got 1st place in some of them. I applied to several security analyst positions but barely got any interviews. Feel like I wasted this past year(currently working as a ca for geek squad) I’m debating going for my masters or maybe the compita trifecta. Any tips or recommendations would be much appreciated. Feeling lost at the moment.

2023.05.27 20:51 Bayernjnge [BILD] Oliver Kahn: "That was the worst day of my life, to take the chance of celebrating with the boys away from me"
The chaos at Bayern is complete. During the minutes of Bayern’s great triumph, it was officially announced that the club is parting ways with boss Oliver Kahn (53) and sports director Hasan Salihamidzic (46).
To BILD, Kahn explains: “I was forbidden by the club to travel to the game in Cologne and to attend the championship celebration.” And Kahn told Sky: “This was the worst day of my life, to take it away from me, to celebrate with the boys.”
Bayern President Herbert Hainer explained Kahn’s dismissal in the official statement as follows: “The decision to part ways with Oliver Kahn was not an easy one for the supervisory board. Nevertheless, due to the overall development, we have come to the conclusion to make a new appointment at the top of the board.”
Jan-Christian Dreesen, the previous deputy chairman of the board, will take over for Kahn, as announced by Bayern. Long-time CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge (67) will join the supervisory board and assist with squad planning according to BILD information.
Towards the team, Kahn wrote on Twitter: “Incredible! A huge compliment and congratulations boys! I always told you! Always give everything until the end and never give up. I am incredibly proud of you and this performance!” And finally: “I’m looking forward to next season. We will not only become German champions for the 12th time! Celebrate! Celebrate!” This celebration will take place in Munich on Sunday without Kahn…

Is there anybody in the Portland area who will reliably do a house call to fix a TV? I found one guy, but he doesn't seem to be working anymore. Apparently the Geek Squad doesn't do house calls in Portland. Mine is 10 years old at least, but it would be nice not to have the hassle of getting someone to take this one away and getting used to a new one --
